The Feline Friendship(2003)
(The fourth book in the Jack Caleb and John Thinnes Mysteries series)
A novel by Michael Allen Dymmoch
After a hiatus, Dymmoch returns with a new Chicago thriller full of her trademark reader-friendly features When a woman is brutally raped in Chicago's posh Lincoln Park, Chicago Detective John Thinnes gets the case. Thinnes hates working rapes. Worse, he's partnered with a new female detective who has a chip on her shoulder the size of a twelve-gauge shotgun. As the rape becomes the first in a series of 'heater cases' -high-profile crimes with political connotations-Thinnes' job is complicated by friction, both at home and on the case. Tempers flare, and the squad polarizes across the gender line. Psychiatrist and police consultant Dr. Jack Caleb is asked to mediate, but Thinnes' sometime ally finds himself with conflicts of interest-because of his friendship and his own peculiar case load. In her best book yet, Michael Allen Dymmoch weaves a complex tale ranging from Chicago's Lincoln Park to the northern suburb of Waukegan. The explosive climax explores not only the karma of evil, but the beginning of a beautiful feline friendship.
